The high five! Irish volunteers in fundraising skydive

Fundraising efforts have gone sky high, as five members of the Order’s Irish Ambulance Corps’ Marino Unit dived out of a plane for charity last week – and added to the coffers for the Order of Malta’s 30th International summer Camp for Young Disabled.

Back on terra firma, this weekend a sponsored bicycle ride will see hundreds of cyclists heading down leafy lanes from 10 starting points right around Ireland, to meet up at Clongoes Wood College on Saturday evening. All the efforts are to support the Camp, which is scheduled for 10-17 August at Clongoes, County Kildare.

Yes, you can!

Over 400 volunteers and young disabled from over 20 countries are looking forward to taking part. The project has been in the making for 12 months, to ensure that every aspect of logistics – and fun – has been carefully planned for. ‘We are counting down the days now,’ says Irish Hospitaller Brendan Lawlor, ‘but reaching for the sky.’ The theme of the camp is “Is Feidir Leat” or “Yes You Can”.
